Notes about this historic site

1 Pipewell Abbey held land at Newbold in 1291. In 1321 the monks leased a grange to John de Merynton. The hall at this time was in ruin, but there was an excellent barn, and the other buildings were all rebuilt. The grange was acquired by Edward Boughton in 1542.
2 The present Manor House is 16th century and later, but there is insufficient evidence to associate it with the monastic complex recorded.
